.s. ambassador to u.n. susan rice immediately after the vote. i want you to see what she said. >> today's unfortunate and counter productive resolution places further obstacles in the path to peace. that is where the united states voted against it. today's grand pronouncements will soon fade, and the palestinian people will wake up tomorrow and find that little about their lives has changed. >> how is it all these other countries, how is it that the -- the united states got it right here? >> mrs. rice is correct. ms. rice is correct, and in terms of -- it's not going to be a sea change on the ground. it could be a forever gone conclusion, but as i talk to analysts, 95% of the world voted here. not for mahmoud abbas. they voted for two-state solution. essentially on the 1967 borders. they voted for that vision. it was the united states, israel, and a smaterring of very small countries. >> what -- >> plus canada. >> what does this mean practically for the palestinian people? does it give them any power? does it move this process forward for them for statehood? >> are you talking about w t
